There was a time when India used to promote Irfan Pathan to number 3 position in batting as a pinch hitter. He had scores of 83, 65 and 64 batting at number 3. When Irfan Pathan played last time, he scored 29 not out with tha bat along with taking 5 wickets. But Indian team is really unware of all these and they still persist with Stuart Binny. How can one comapre Pathan to Binny? Pathan is the fastest Indian the 3rd fastes overall to reach 100 wickets in ODI’s.
In the first ODI of the Hutch cup in 2006 against Pakistan, Irfan Pathan scored a magestic 65 of 65 balls coming at number 3. He tore apart the Pakistan bowling which then consisted of Asif, Gul and Afridi. He scored 12 fours and 1 six, a total of 54 runs in boundaries. He was very severe on any thing pitched full or outside the off stump and he was damn sever on Umar Gul. He hit Umar Gul for 22 runs in one over that consisted of 5 consecutive fours and had previosly hit him for a six in his last over.
Umar Gul conceeded 22 runs in his 3rd over in which Irfan Pathan hit him for 5 consecutive fours and he was taken out of attack after this over. He total conceeded 35 runs of his 3 overs. Pkaistan bowling struggled after that as India went on to score a mammoth total of 328 runs.
Watch Irafn Pathan hitting Umar Gul for five consecutive fours in an over.
